I have no idea what is wrong with her. It doesn't seem to itch or hurt her.

There are dry brown, and moist brown flakes in this area with what seems to be a raw in areas. This only occurs in her armpit!

She is an 8 year old collie and German Shepard mix.

If somebody could help identify what is wrong I would greatly appreciate it!

Yuck. Ugly.

.

Poor dog! -- has a vet seen this? - It looks quite nasty. :(
If yer GP vet doesn't have an excellent idea of the root-cause, i'd ask for a referral to a k9 dermatologist - if U have vet-insurance, this will be covered.

If it ISN'T too horrible - I-O-W, she's not in pain, she eats, drinks, can sleep normally, etc - I'd even ask my GP-vet for symptomatic relief, then i'd BUY A POLICY that covers dermatology consults & treatment [Westies & SharPei are typically excluded], & wait out the introductory period.
Then, i'd ask for that dermatologist referral, & go get a proper in-depth work-up, Dx, & Tx.

If yer own vet diagnoses it before the policy kicks in, it's a "pre-existing condition" & cannot be covered. :ponder: But if she's mizrable, she can't wait for that, she needs help now; U know Ur dog, how is she feeling?

I sure hope it's something simple - but it looks ugly & complex. :headshake:
